Hello, I am working with FFT v.3.2 from Xilinx. Some questions relate directly to that core, some do not. 1. Why is block floating point unavailable for Pipelined/streaming FFT? Is it because the dynamic range is too hard to predict? 2. a) Is the output of A/D converter fixed point (generally)? b) Then only division can introduce floating point, right? 3. For the output ordering, the ou...

So, there are algorithms out there to perform an FFT on real data, that save (I think) roughly 2x the calculations of FFTs for complex data. I did a quick search, but didn't find any that are made specifically for FPGAs. Was my search too quick, or are there no IP sources to do this? It would seem like a slam-dunk for Xilinx and Intel/Altera to include these algorithms in their FFT li...

## FFT core has reversed output data

Hello, I'm implementing a autocorrelation function using a fft and ifft hard core (v6.0) on a Virtex5. When starting the fft, I see at the output that the result is reversed in the frequency domain. Example: The input signal is a sinus with a frequency of 2 Hz. As output signal I expect a dirac impuls at the beginning (imaginary). -> f(0)=0; f(1)=0; f(2)=1; f(3)=0; ?; f(N-3)=0; f(N-2)=-1; f

Hi all, I am trying to simulate xilinx fft core. I have calculated the bin size. But i do not know how to view that bin number in Modelsim. For example, If my input signal frequency is 10Hz, Sampling rate is 50, and FFT point is 1024,my Bin size is 204.8. How do i see this with Modelsim. Please guide me. Thanks in advance Parvathi -------------------------...

## 1024 POINTS FFT V2.0 Xilinx Core

Hi everybody!! I trying to use the core "1024 points fft v2.0" from Xilinx, but I have the problem that I don't get the correct result. I'm using a constant input of 0001(Hex) for real and 0000(Hex) for imaginary. During the intermediate steps of the fft, the core seems to be coming up with strange values that it writes to memory and the error propagates to the output. I have simulated...

Structural simulation of FFT core reveal the frequency to bin (XK_IDX) mapping are bit reversed when the FFT core is configured to output in streaming, natural order. Real time swapping of the frequency needs FIFO of 2^N deep. Can anyone help me to implement a more optimized freq swap method.

## Xilinx LogiCore FFT 3.2

Hi All, I am using the Xilinx Core Genenator to generate the FFT core for my design. But when I tried to simulate with a random noise input with N = 128, the output xk_re and xk_im are all between -5 and 5 which is obviously not the correct result. Matlab result show the fft output in order of 100. I used fixed length of 128 and tried Radix-4 and Radix-2 implemenation options with 16bi...

I'm trying to find a 64-point FFT/IFFT core. Target is Actel IGLOO family. Needs to run fast enough to complete in 3.2us, which is tough in an IGLOO. Actel has a free FFT core but it is not quite fast enough. It's a radix-2 core, which is not optimal for this application. Radix-4 would be better. I've looked at the cfft core on Opencores and it may work for us, but also want to check co...

Hello, I am trying to connect a FFT module generated with coregen to a microprocessor. The problem is that the microprocessor works with floating data in IEEE754 format and the xilinx FFT module accepts, fixed point and block-floating point. How can I convert the data from the microprocessor to one the core understand. Regards Javier Castillo

Hi, I'd like to ask experts here about ideas to perform a FFT on an arbitrary number of points (for real data). The cores usually found for an FPGA implementation only permit FFTs on a number of points that is a power of 2. In our particular case however, we need to be able to do an FFT on a vector of say, 1025 points. Our current algorithm is to zero-pad this vector to 2048 points. ...

Hi, I have just published a simple, parametrized synthesizable FFT engine, which allows the user to define the length of FFT (as power of two), define the format of the numbers and adjust the engine to the latency of the "butterfly block". I couldn't find similar open source solution, so I decided to publish mine. Of course it is the user's responsibility to implement the "butterfly block"...

Hi, I look at the FFT core description of Xilinx and I do not understand the function of switch in the diagram. There are two switches in the FFT LogiCore diagram, at the both sides of Buttfly. One switch connects the output of RAM block, which the other switch connects to the RAM input. I think the data input and output of RAM can directly connect to the butterfly, because the different RAM...
